Quick snapping in the city..




So there I was, in the city on a rainy day! I found a spot undercover to try my hand at a bit of quick snapping street photography style. I think my Olympus OM-D together with the 12-50mm lens coped quiet well, although I don't have much experience with this type of photography (all tips are most welcome). Switching the camera off in-between shots doesn't help, it's amazing what you miss when you have to switch back on every-time, people move so fast, especially when it's raining! Couldn't help smiling at the sunflower who didn't like getting wet below, it's never going to get taller like that :) Happy weekend, take care and stay safe.. P.s. some of the shots taken before the rain. P.p.s. big catch up today!

  6. You could do a nice coffee table book with photos like these...I'd guess you've got enough to fill more than one book. If you do publish same, please let me know 'cause I'll buy it straight off!

  10. I find umbrellas to be particularly interesting both to own and to photograph. I have several of my own and could easily buy more. I like the variety of styles that you posted.

    I certainly didn't expect to see a cheerful sunflower - what a lovely splash of colour.

    Enjoy your weekend

    All the best Jan

  13. Interesting to do some people watching Grace. I'm always amazed at the fact some people will wear short sleeves and shorts even on a cold and rainy day, while others seem to be dressed for winter! Have a lovely weekend.

  16. These are great street shots. I think you did rather well. A couple of them make me think that I should taken some street shots of all the ladies in London with their knees peeking out of their slacks. I've of course, seen the trend of jeans with holes in them but it seems in London any kind of pants with holes in them are in style.
    P.S. I loved your abandoned post! What sweeties.

  19. Why would you switch it off between shots? Most camera batteries can hold a charge throughout day of shooting. At worst, keep a spare charged battery with you. (I like your collection.)

  20. Interesting, nice and fun posting.
    A bit like "paparazzi" today, Grace?
